A new two-disc set from the Hollow Horn label that will contain the complete performance from the legendary concert at the Town Hall in New York City on 12 April 1963. Several songs have appeared from this concert over the years from several different sources (including some off scratchy acetates) but this features the whole 23 song performance from a perfect fully mixed professional tape source. The sound quality is staggering, and this performance, in my opinion, is one of the most important that has ever emerged in the history of “non official” releases. The packaging is up to usual high standard for Hollow Horn releases, and this one includes an extra booklet as well as the usual fold-out panel design.
DISC ONE: RAMBLIN’ DOWN THROUGH THE WORLD; BOB DYLAN’S DREAM; TALKIN’ NEW YORK; BALLAD OF HOLLIS BROWN; WALLS OF RED WING; ALL OVER YOU; TALKIN’ JOHN BIRCH PARANOID BLUES; BOOTS OF SPANISH LEATHER; HERO BLUES; BLOWIN’ IN THE WIND; JOHN BROWN; TOMORROW IS A LONG TIME; A HARD RAIN’S A GONNA FALL
DISC TWO: DUSTY OLD FAIRGROUNDS; WHO KILLED DAVEY MOORE?; SEVEN CURSES; HIGHWAY 51; PRETTY PEGGY-O; BOB DYLAN’S NEW ORLEANS RAG; DON’T THINK TWICE, IT’S ALL RIGHT; HIDING TOO LONG; WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE; MASTERS OF WAR; LAST THOUGHTS ON WOODY GUTHRIEIf you liked this review, buy me a cup of joe. (Suggested: $3 a shot or $7.5 for a double)
